A considerable company of Masons went from this city to Cassville last Sunday to participate in the funeral services of Mr. H. H. Holmes, who was buried with Masonic honors that day. Mr. Holmes was one of our oldest and best citizens, highly esteemed by all our people, and a bright and shining light in the Masonic fraternity.

“Through The County.”

Cass Station.

In the death of Mr. H. H. Holmes, which occurred several weeks since Bartow county has lost one of her best citizens. Mr. Holmes has been a resident of the Cassville community for almost forty years and was liked by every one who knew him. He was a consistent member of the Presbyterian church and lived a life that tells us that he is in heaven. The writer knew him personally for fourteen years and always found him to be an honest, upright Christian gentleman in all the walks of life. He left a wife, a large number of children and many friends who mourn his departure. But we mourn not as those who have no hope, we expect to meet him among the great throng in the eternal city of God, when life’s dark day is done.
